Selvedge 20

Oh man, you've no idea how long I've waited to get hold of this issue of Selvedge - several months, since I saw in the previous issue that this one would be about Scandinavia. But finally I've got it. Yay!

And it doesn't disappoint - does Selvedge ever? I do think that it's somewhat misleading to have 'Scandinavia' as the theme - most of it is about Swedish this or that. But I suppose to people outside of Scandinavia there's not much difference. More than once I've been asked if Denmark is the capital of Sweden..? Anyway, mini-rant over. ;-)

It's a fab magazine, with loads of interesting articles. I can't say for certain that they are interesting as I haven't read any of them yet! But doesn't an article about Carl and Karin Larsson sound good? Or what about one about Scandinavian textile design or the one about Louise Bourgeois? Btw, did anyone else watch the programme about her yesterday (Imagine on BBC)? Fascinating stuff.

I'm really looking forward to reading it all. Although I was planning on saving it for the plane when we go to Denmark (in 1 month and 10 days, but who's counting?!). Not sure I can stand the temptation, though.
